High-Ball

Fabio Fabor & Antonio Arena – High-Ball

“On occasion I danced for nights on end, ever madder about people and life. At times, late on those nights when the dancing, the slight intoxication, my wild enthusiasm, everyone’s violent unrestraint would fill me with a tired and overwhelmed rapture, it would seem to me – at the breaking point of fatigue and for a second’s flash – that at last I understood the secret of creatures and of the world. But my fatigue would disappear the next day, and with it the secret; I would rush forth anew. I ran on like that, always heaped with favors, never satiated, without knowing where to stop, until the day – until the evening rather when the music stopped and the lights went out.” – Albert Camus, The Fall

Drum Sequence

Raja Zahr – Drum Sequence

Yes, I love you too dear disco drum. Featured Lebanese cult track is for those willing and able to throw themselves into the groove and dance like nobody’s watching. Hooray for social awkwardness.

Love Train

Dagmara D. – Love Train

She thought about Mitka, his long eyelashes, his perfect toes. The day they ran through the freezing rain to the Armaments Museum and hid inside a tank and the museum guard found them after the place had closed. They ended up sitting up all night with him in the guard’s booth clinking champagne glasses.” – Rosa Liksom, Compartment No. 6

Gypsy Sky

Another geat record from the cheapo bins. Conducted by french singer/guitar player Alain Labacci, who also appears on Toni Van Duyne’s Cosmic Dancer album. The spanish guitar and my Discos Movieplay pressing initially led me to the conclusion it’s español, however français it is.

Colour Generator

This bagel has been lounging around for quite some time, but it’s still tender and luscious. Released in ’76, it has all the right ingredients- infectious groove, seraphic voice and oh these Moogs! It won’t break the bank either and gets the deck sharks going.

Vetrina Di Hit Parade

Back after a god knows how long offline period with a promise. And a hit. Ofcourse everybody in the multiverse knows it but how about this version by The Droogs (if I remember right)? The tune is taken from Vetrina Di Hit Parade Vol.10 and the sleeve doesn’t offer any artist info. In any case, you know what you should do until your soles glow like mine. It’s saturday!

One More Mission (Another Version)

Quinn Martin – One More Mission (Another Version)

No hope I’m afraid, I know we can’t be saved, No peace in my mind, Till I find what’s behind. Just one more mission.

As some of my 11 fans already know, I’ve a very soft spot for Italo. This relatively rare 12″ cover version of the Rockets classic touches the all right spots with dark lyrics and bounding bass. In the picture decaying remains of club Ultimo Impero in Airasca, Italy.

Gluck Track

Gluck Track – Love Concert

Do we really need another version of Tchaikovsky’s piano concert number one? Yes if it’s this good, if it’s produced By Detto Mariano and if it comes with a triumphant chicken noise intro.

Thorleifs

Thorleifs – American Generation

Strapping bunch of Swedes take on the Ritchie Family summer classic. As my H1 got low battery this was recorded with the old Iriver for inferior sound quality.

Queen Of Night

Magic – Queen Of Night

“It was okay to be desperate, to be tender, to sit alone or share the company of others. There was a great warmth and tolerance in this destitute setting.” – Anders Petersen on Café Lehmitz.

Gruzia: Iveria

Gruzia: Iveria

You must celebrate the 1st of May with the comrade workers of the Soviet Republic of Gruzia. Here’s your flight ticket (one way).
The group is apparently called Iveria. After the rousing, heroic opening number keep dancing to the (un)related music that follows.

Gruppe Loreley

Gruppe Loreley – Loreley

The beautiful Loreley sits on the cliff above the Rhine river in Germany. She combs her golden hair and distracts shipmen with her song, causing them to crash on the rocks. This was documented in Amando de Ossorio’s 1974 film Las Garras de Loreley / Loreley’s Grasp in which the siren was portrayed by the wonderful Helga Line.

The 1977 track has seductive power as well, luring you thru the Munich-style intro into it’s schlager inferno within 35 seconds.

Здравствуй, Песня

Я Жду Тебя

Венера

Огонь Мы Любим Диско

According to Soviet authorities jazz is a Russian invention. Disco must be, too. Here’s their grandiose take on Io Sono Sempre Quello Que, a great version of the Biddu production Disco Fever with the word fever correctly pronounced as FE-VAH, and a driving interpretation of the classic tune Venus.

Fly

Gate Number 7 – Fly

If there is an offical anthem for the mile high club this could be it. To join you need to have sexual intercourse while on board a flying airplane. Of course the mile high is not an offical club as such, it’s something that people bring up after a few drinks: “oh, last weekend flying back from Torremolinos, know what happened? She was a stewardess, too. I quess that makes me a gold member of the club, right?”

There’s also a vocal dinner disco version by Tony Pacino but this is the one to fly with.

Sensación Melancólica

Carlos Cutaia Orquesta – Sensación Melancólica

I almost accidentally on purpose entered some deep and sarcastic one-liners here in order to express something I’m not even thinking. Meaning blaah, just listen, it’s good, it’s rare and plays well with Corn Flakes – Sing 12″ if you want to intensify misery.
